Thank you all so very much for your responses. At least I know now that I am not the only one who had this suspicion about HRT. Does anyone remember the old margerine commercial where this actress dressed up says - It's not nice to fool Mother Nature!
I feel that is what HRT does, and sometimes it backfires, when you try to surpress the natural flow of physical changes.
I really appreciate all of you and what each of us is facing. It is so much easier with such a wonderful support group - it keeps you going! You are all in my thoughts and prayers - especially you who are facing surgery.
Love to all,
